The Greater Louisville Project seeks to mobilize key stakeholders across sectors to focus on the areas of highest potential impact to our community’s success. By leveraging data and benchmarking against our peer cities, GLP helps establish a shared community agenda and common metrics for long-term progress.

Select one of the Deep Drivers below to start exploring.

Education

Education is the foundation on which progress is made.

Health

Health underlies every facet of our civic life.

Quality of Place

Quality of place defines the very soul of a successful community.

Jobs

A vibrant workforce and strong job market create greater opportunity for all.

We Measure & Connect

The Greater Louisville Project benchmarks Louisville’s performance against its peer cities, keeping us focused on a shared agenda for long-term progress. These “peers” are cities that share common indicators, embody similar socio-economic characteristics, and provide data points that make comparison of the factors influencing the Deep Drivers of Change possible. How we perform against peers in addressing strategic challenges allows community leaders to set actionable goals that drive improvement, position our city for long-term progress, and help us all build a greater Louisville.

Our Data Legacy

The GLP publishes data, research, and information related to our Deep Drivers through its Competitive City Reports. These reports help connect the dots between education, jobs, health, and quality of place.
